影片对白

Elizabeth: I love this dance.

Darcy: lndeed. Most invigorating.

Elizabeth: It is your turn to say something, Mr. Darcy. I talked about the dance. Now you ought to remark on the size of the room or the number of couples.

Darcy: I'm perfectly happy to oblige. Please advise me of what you would like most to hear?

Elizabeth: That reply will do for present. Perhaps by and by I may observe that private balls are much pleasanter than public ones. For now, we may remain silent.

Darcy: Do you talk as a rule while dancing?

Elizabeth: No. No, I prefer to be unsociable and taciturn. Makes it all so much more enjoyable, don't you think?

Darcy: Tell me, do you and your sisters very often walk to Meryton?

Elizabeth: Yes, we often walk to Meryton. It's a great opportunity to meet new people. In fact when you met us, we'd just had the pleasure of forming a new acquaintance.

Darcy: Mr. Wickham's blessed with such happy manners, he's sure of making friends. Whether he's capable of retaining them is less certain.

Elizabeth: He's been so unfortunate as to lose your friendship. And I dare say that is an irreversible event?

Darcy: It is. Why do you ask such a question?

Elizabeth: To make out your character, Mr. Darcy.

Darcy: And what have you discovered?

Elizabeth: Very little. I hear such different accounts of you as puzzle me exceedingly.

Darcy: I hope to afford you more clarity in the future.
